 Women To Join Dying A. M. U. S

North
Shore
Range
• BLAIR RANGE, North
Vancouver, has this year
been made available for
members of the C.O.T.C.
Such enthusiasm was shown
last year at camp, with small
bore rifles, and an indoor
range that it was decided to
give corps members a chance
to use service rifles on an
outdoor range.
NOVEMBER 14, 21
Tho practice will take place on
the week ends of November 12 and
21, and will bo open to all ranks.
Transportation to and from tho
range will be supplied by military
authorities.
This will bo the first time since
tho fall of 1939 that tho corps has
enjoyed this privilege.
SURPRISE
Work on tho land behind the
Armoury came as a complete surprise to most members of the
corps, at last Saturday's parade.
With labor conditions as they are
it is Impossible to obtain a bulldozer, so the only expedient was
to do the work by manpower.
This land, taken over by the C.
O.T.C, with the permission of
President Klinck, will be used
merely as an assembly ground,
and not as a parade ground.
OBSTACLES
Lleuts. M. Van Vliet and R. T.
Osborne are planning to dig
trenches and build obstacles on the
ground on the left of the Lower
Mall, which will be used in "hardening up" exercises.
The corps has been asked tp turn
out as strong a detachment as
possible for the Victory Loan Parade, to be held on Sunday, October 18.

Canon Talbot'Hindley
To Speak On Security
■*VjkVfr
•   DEAN D. BUCHANAN will introduce Canon William
Talbot-Hindley, M.A., K.C.H.S., who is to address UBC
students in the Auditorium at 12:30 today.
A  typical English  headmaster,       ____________________
Mr. Talbot-Hlndley's addresses at
various city schools have been
spiced with personal reminiscences
ot tho Royal Family, especially of
King George V, his personal friend.
He has also given many amusing
and informative accounts of such
close friends as General Dobble,
former commander of embattled
Malta, Lord Gort, present commander of Malta, and Brigadier-
General Smith, former Commandant  of Sandhurst.
TALKED WITH HITLER
In his visits to Germany he has
had the opportunity of conversing
with Hitler and Rudolph Hess.
He, himself, is a man of position
and authority in England. In the
last war he held the rank of Major
as Chaplain of the B.E.F. In
France,  1914-16.
The subject of his address today will be "Security, Its Source
and Sequence," to be given under
the auspices of the VCU.
TALBOT-HINDLEY
Aussies Visit Campus;
Like Thunderbirds* Co*eds
•   CAMPUS CO-EDS turned to watch on Tuesday, when
seven sun-tanned fliers wearing the aark blue uniform
of the Royal Australian Air Force made a tour of UBC for
the first time.

practice of the Thunderbirds under Mr. W Var Vl:-* "u certainly is a fast game," said Scotty.
who seemed to be talking for the
party. "It wasn't popular in Australia till the Yanks arrived, but
since then, everyone is taking it
up."
BUILDINGS
Their comment on the Library,
—and the co-eds who were studying there,—was cryptic and to the
point. "It's a nice place, alright,"
said blue-eyed Eric in his almost
Cockney accent, "but I certainly
dont see how anyone gets any
studying done. I know I wouldn't."
The building which pleased them
most wasn't the Brock, or the gym,
or the Science Building, or the
Union College, though. It was the
caf.
There they ordered seven large
pots of tea and toast. This ls
really like home, they sighed, and
dug in. They explained that San
Francisco was wonderful, and so
was the food, but they got terribly
sick of the coffee. "We used to
just long for a good cup of tea,"
they agreed.
COMPLETE  COURSE
Having taken their elementary
training in Australia, the boys are
to complete their course in Canada,
—then back to Australia and the
Japs.
"We're looking forward to our
first sight of snow, though," said
one, and we'd like to ?ee Quebec
City, after all the travelogues
they've  shown   back  home."

• GILBERT AND SULLIVAN will again be the
composers of this year's Musical Society fall production.
The announcement was
made yesterday that the Mus
Soccers will' present "The
Pirates of Penzance."
The tryouts for parts in the
opera are on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 13 and 14, from
12:30-6:00 in the Auitorium. Tho
results will be posted the following Thursday on the Musical Club
notice board.
The society's fall formal will be
held for members of the organization on Wednesday, October 26,
in the Brock. All members are
invited to attend.
MIXER
The club is also sponsoring a
mixer, to be held on Saturday, October 17, in Brock Hall. Dancing
will be from 8:00 to 12:00. Admission is 25 cents per person.
The Glee Club, organized this
year as a part of tho Musical Society, has held two successful
meetings. However, Dr. W. MacDonald, first honorary life-member of the Society, expressed tho
opinion that the Glee Club was
not a practical undertaking because of insufficient time for rehearsals.

KING OF VIBES
The King of the Vibes started
to the cheers of a seml-nlled house
with "Gone With What Wind,"
and by the time the roof had settled down after the first thundering applav.se, late-informed students were fighting to find standing room In the rhythm-rocked

Ex-U.B.C. Student Invents
Gun Equipment; Joins RCAF
• A FLY CRAWLING across a mirror in a coffee shop started it. That's what gave
tall, quiet, red-haired Geoffrey Hotham the idea for an invention which took him to the important war offices in New York, Washington and Ottawa.
The invention is a war produc-       —-----_—--_——-_-_-_____       ________________________
tion instrument used in the inspection of big guns. Geoff would
not say anything more about it
than that.
EX-VARSITY
Hotham   started   Vanity   throe
years ago intending to go into Applied Science. The following year
he was employed in the book store,
and last year was working for
Boeings, when he got the idea for
the invention.
Sitting drinking a milk shake after the swing shift, he watched the
reflection of a fly on the mirror
opposite him, got the idea for his
invention and went "home" to his
room at the Y.M.C.A., where he
was staying, to work it out.
He started saving his money in
September, and by Christmas, he
had completed his plans and was
on his way to New York, his drawings in his pocket.
OFFER REJECTED
He offered his theory first to
Simmons Aerocessorles, where after two months of development in
their labs., they decided they were
not interested.
Undaunted, Geoff now approached the U.S. Army Ordnance
Corps in New York and the National Inventors Council in Washington. Here he saw the six Interviewing englneerr. under Lt.-
Col. L. B. Lent and Mr. T. R. Taylor.
They sent him to the War Production Board, the U.S. Army Ordnance, the Bureau of Ships and
the U.S. Corps where his idea was
discussed and accepted.
DISCUSSION
He w. s now sent to Dr. H. R.
Goldstein, director of .the British
Inventors   Conned   at   Washington,
who sent him to Mr. J. H. Parkin,
director of the Division of Mechanical Engineering at the National Research Council, Ottawa.
In the Division of Optics and the
Division of Physics, Hotham's invention was again discussed and
accepted.
Geoff is now back in Vancouver,
and will join the Air Force in two
weeks. He had intended to pursue his studies again at UBC, but
being 21 decided that he would
join the Air Force instead.
He doesn't know what he'll be
doing in the Air Force. "I guess
I'll go where they can use me
best," he said.
MANY INVENTORS
Geoff feels that there should be
many students on the campus who
are potential inventors, and that
his experience in the East should
be valuable, He admits that he
made a mistake in going directly
to the East. If he was doing it all
over, he says, "I would send the
plans and wait for the authorities
to send me one. Thus, saving much
time and money."
Intra-Mural
Board Meeting
IMPORTANT NOTICE - There
will be a met ting of the Intra-
Mural Administrative Board today
at 3:30. It Is necessary for all representatives to vurn out to this
meeting. Those Fraternities who
have not yet put in an appearance
at the meetings, must come out to
tho meeting todny.
Red Cross
Calls For
More Girls
• MORE KNITTERS are definitely   needed   for   Red   Cross
work. Registration of women students in the University has fallen
from 800 to 500, in the past year,
thereby leaving quite a quantity
of unused wool.
Everyone who is able to knit
should help the Red Cross, and it
would be greatly appreciated if the
girls who are already taking one
hour of Red Cross eould arrange
to take an additional hour.
Get In touch with Dean D.
Mawdsley, Mrs. F. H. Soward, or
Mary Mulvin.
BOOK EXCH.
CLOSES SAT.—
PAY EARLY
• THE  BOOK  Exchange
having almost completed
its year's work, will close at
the end of this week. The
year has been very succes-
ful, with a net take of $1,300,
averaging out to $2.00 for
each of its 650 customers.
Payment to students who entered books for Sale will be prompter
this year than last, and is scheduled to take place at the end of
next week.
Applicants for payment must
present their receipts.
frenzy  with  his  riding   "I  Got
Rhythm".
Winding up with his machine-
gun interpretation of "China
Stomp" and its encore "Twelfth
Street Rag," the dusky favorite
left the eager students almost as
winded as was the inspired quintet.
QUINTET
The quintet, composed of Dave
Robinson, bass; Ray Perry electric
violin; Milton Butler, piano; and
George Jenkins, drums, as well as
the old master on the vibes, all
featured particularly brilliant
solos, and appeared mora than
pleased with the enthusiastic student reception.
Pass feature proceeds from the
recital, a check for $100 dollars
was turned over by Hampton and
his men to the Canadian Red Cross
during a last minute stage interview with John Carson.
MOVE TO SEATTLE
Leaving their record-breaking
stay at the Orpheum on Saturday,
the band will moVe to Seattle, and
then to tho Bremerton shipyards,
Hampton announce*! In an interview after the show.
During the next few weeks the
band will get air-time between
six and six-thirty every night on
the Coca-Cola program, in special
broadcasts from Seattle.
Halpern
To Give
Lectures
• DR. IDA HALPERN, holder of
a degree in "Musicology," (the
modern science of music) will give
lectures on musical appreciation
during noon hours, if student demand warrants it.
The evolution of symphony from
the music of Hayden to that of
Shoenberg will be one of
the topics of Dr. Halpern's informal lecture-discussions.
Dr. Halpern believes that full
appreciation of music requires an
acquaintance with musical criticism, psychology, and compost-
tion, and she will deal with these
subjects In her lectures.
Students are asked to note that
the lectures will be given at noon
this year, rather than In the evenings as they were last year.
Those interested in attending the
lectures are requested to leave
their names at the UBYSSEY office as soon as possible.
Last Spring in an effort to savt
their one-time rival organization,
two members of tho Sdenceman's
Undergraduate Society volunteered
their services in executive positions. The insult never so much u
ruffled the temper of the "men of
culture," but members of tho
council ruled that these two
sciencemen were Ineligible as thty
were not registered in tho Arts
faculty.
MEETING TUESDAY
President Hugh Ritchie of tho
AMUS announced that next Thursday's meeting would bo tho last
if the women did not show more
interest in the faculty than tho
so-called superior box has demonstrated in the past. In tho'past
Artawomen have cried nut for
representation on tho body but tho
masculine element has sneered at
their claims. Now it seems that
the honor of Arts depends entirely on its women.
So for the Artsmen and all Arts-
women, Thursday noon hi the Auditorium will mark either the demise or the rejuvenation of tho
Undergraduate Society.
W.U.S. TO HOLD
TEA FOR OUT-
OF-TOWN GIRLS
• IN  HONOUR  of  girls
whose homes are not in
Vancouver, the Women's
Undergraduate Society will
hold a tea in Brock Hail on
Wednesday, October 14,
from 3:80 to 5 o'clock.
Dean Dorothy Mawdsley and
Mary Mulvin, president of W.U.S.,
will receive the girls, while other
members of the executive will
serve.
Daphne Ryan, vice-president of
the society is In charge of the arrangements for the tea.
All out-of-town girls, whether
freshettes or upperclasswomen are
cordially invited to attend.
All girls who plan to go to tho
tea are requested to sign a list
which will be posted outside Dean
Mawdsley's office. By co-operating In this way, the out-of-towners
will greatly help the executive In
planning the  arrangements.
TOTEM RELICS
REST IN GLORY
IN PUB MORGUE
• DON SOUTH, third year Com-
merce student, was browsing
around a Pender Street bookshop
a few days ago when four ancient issues of the Totem caught
his eye.
After investigating, he bought
these book collector's treasures for
the amazing sum of four cents,
and then donated them to tho
Publication Board. They now rest
regally in the morgue of the Pub
enjoying the respect which they
are due.
Prom and Senior Class
Parties"Campus Informals
•   THE WAR HAS been the cause of more drastic departures from tradition—this time in the social functions
of thp year.
"The only down-town formals
that will be held this year are the
Arts-Aggie, Red Cross, and the
Science Balls. In former times the
Junior Prom and the Senior Class
Party were grand affairs held in
popular ball-rooms with the revellers replete in tuxes and formal
gowns. But this year the AMS
considered that these were, because of their restricted attendance,
an unnecessary expense. Their
policy is that no group should be
allowed to attend more than two
formals per year, and if the Junior Prom were held down-town, It
would mean that third yeex would
be able to attend three of these
functions.
RED CROSS BALL
It was pointed out, however,
that Fraternities and Sororities
may hold private balls providing
that they do not come under the
jurisdiction of thc Student Council Last year th ■> Fraternities
sponsored the Rnd Cn<s Ball, and
not knowing t.iat the Student
Council had anyll '• i 'd do with
it, they were slightly perturbed
when thi   ;c, fe0t -.jt 0f hand.
There is also thc possibility that
tho Science Ball will b<» held on
tho campus, but nothing definite
is known at the present   date. Page Two

Formal Functions
Many persons on the campus have expressed, dissatisfaction with the new social
policy of the Alma Mater Society, which will
bring the Junior Prom and the Senior Class
Party to Brock Hall as strictly informal
functions.
These people base their objections on
the grounds that the Junior Prom is a tradition which should not be interfered With.
The fact that hoary halls of learning elsewhere on the continent, which are far more
steeped in tradition than UBC, have seen
fit to eliminate and curtail many of their
traditional functions means nothing to them.
They cannot see that the war makes any
difference in the social set-up.
Formal social functions are far more
expensive than ordinary informals, and in
the cabaret style, with dinner being served,
they use up rationed food supplies. These
two reasons alone are sufficient for reducing
them or for that matter even eliminating
them entirely. Now, by leaving three formals on the social calendar, the student body
has taken very mild action and has shown
a good deal of discretion. It still leaves at
least one, and at the outside, two functions
to satisfy the desire for stiff-shirt affairs,
which admittedly have a certain flavor that
no informal can touch. In war time two
formals are not only sufficient, but in light of
what is happening in other countries
throughout the world, we are lucky to have
any.
There are, however, aside from the war,
several other good reasons why the class
parties should be moved to the campus.
Under tiie pass system fund which pays
for the class parties, provision is made to
give the students in each class a party which
shall not cost more than a dollar a head. The
frosh and soph parties cost less than that
figure, while last year the Senior Party cost
more.
There is no reason for one class being
allowed more than their share while other
classes are getting by on less. The big difference in cost comes from the use of Brock
Hall, which entails no expense for hall rental
and a greatly reduced bill for catering. The
frosh-soph party was satisfactory even at
the lower cost and in less spectacular setting,
and it would seem that there is no reason
to feel that the lower classmen were not
getting a square deal as far as the pass system was concerned.
Nevertheless, the pass system provides
a class party for all, and as everyone pays
the same there can be no grounds for allowing one group to have advantages that
other groups are not given. Then, too,
Brock Hall was built as a student building
to be a centre of student activities, and the
only good reason that can be advanced for
holding functions in other places is that the
Brock is not large enough to house the
crowd.
As for the Junior Prom, tradition or no,
it is still a class party. In the past many
students in the junior class have felt that
they could not attend owing to the cost of
corsages, transportation, difficulties, or perhaps because they could not get a tux. Thus,
having paid for the dance they were still
unable to attend.
After considering the matter in this
light there is no justification for the senior
class party being held downtown in war
years or in ordinary times. As for the Junior Prom, at least as we know it, it is merely
a class party that has been glorified into a
tradition. Traditions mean nothing these
days and there is no reason why it should
not be reduced to its proper place.
For these reasons we back the changes
in the social policy and hope that the student body will see fit to keep future activities in line with the curtailment policy.

For The Engineers
• PRODUCTION of several million dollars' worth of electric
apparatus for synthetic rubber
plants is being rushed at every
major General Electric plant.
According to company officials
many plants are beyond the stage
of design. The company is
speeding production on orders for
apparatus which will supply power in plants now under construction in various parts of the country, for the conversion of petroleum and alcohol derivatives Into
synthetic rubber.
POWER
What are probably the largest
turbine-generators ever designed
for chemical process plants are
included in the list of equipment
on order. These turbine-generators are designed to operate so efficiently that power will be produced virtually as a by-product
of the steam required for the processing.
Other apparatus, transformers,
•switching equipment, and motors
are being manufactured on a mass
production basis to perform major
functions in tho processing of
butadiene and styrene and lnpoly-
merizlng or mixing them into buna
rubber.
HORSEPOWER
Steam turbines ranging in size
from 10 to 800 horsepower are required    for    driving    centrifugal
*4
pumps which move fluids from
one stage of the process to the
other. Anticipating the demand
for these turbines, General Electric has set up additional production facilities to make them available soon and in large quantities
for the synthetic rubber program.
Thc output of a new factory has
been stepped up to meet rubber
construction schedules.
35,000 KILO
The large turbine - generators
which General Electric is building for these plants have boon
adapted from similar apparatus
which has long been supplied to
public utilities. At a plant under
construction In Texas, the company will furnish a turbine-generator rated at -35,000 kilowatts. It
will also provide two 25,000-kllo-
watt turbine-generators for a
completely electrified refinery devoted to synthetic rubber, aviation gasoline, toluene and other
war products in Louisiana.
Other electric equipment being
made available for synthetic rubber plants ranges all the way
from diesel-electric locomotives to
small, but powerful, floodlights
and searchlights. The locomotives
are designed for switching tank
cars in which rubber ingredients
are shipped from one plant to
another, while the lights, focussed
on plant boundary fences, provide
for protection  against  sabotage.

American
Fad-Shions
By GYPSY JACKUN
• YOU   CERTAINLY   have   to
give American girb> credit for a
lot of originality. For instance,
just listen to these ideas for making necklaces:
In Madison, West Virginia, the
girls are stringing painted artificial fingernails on yarn chains . . .
in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they
prefer those tiny flashlight bulbs,
painted in various bright colours
. . . edibles, such as raisins and
breakfast cereals are 'the thing to
string,' in Fond du Lac, Michigan
. . . and in Rochester, New York,
gold and silver pen points are
considered smart.
• A GROUP of girls in Beaver
Falls, Pennsylvania, got together the other day, and trekked
down to the local mens wear store.
There they purchased white sweat •
shirts, all in size 40: so big that
they literally hung to the knees.
They declared a National Sweatshirt Day, and caused QUITE a
sensation on the campus!
• GETTING 'ALL tied up' has
a literal meaning to the girls In
Lowell, Indiana, they tell us, for
they have been whipping up
skirts, recently, out of . . . guess
what: boys" neckties! They sew
them toge ther, with the wide part
at the hem, and use a tie for the
waist-band. The idea is to get
your boy-friend (s) to give you
their old ones, an dto embroider
the name of the donater on each
tie.
• AND YET ANOTHER wacky
clothes fad-shlon comes to us
from an informant in Salt Lake
City, Utah. When the girls there
get tired of an old dress. They collect scraps of material In various
colors and patterns, and sew them
on the dress as pockets, in every
conceivable size and shape. Well,
anyway, it would eliminate carrying a purse!
• EVERYBODY     knows     that
flowers and ribbons, in the hair,
are pretty ... but definitely old
stuff. So, for a change, the girls
in Theills, New York, wear those
fluffy swansdown powder puffs In
their hair. Thoy come In lovely
colors, and look like boibons.
• THE THINO about saddle shoes
is, of courtse, to wear them in
as dilapidated a conition as possible. Well,.in Peoria, Illin^'s, the
same thing Jpplies to porkpie hats.
The girls ^iere get them in this
satisfactory! condition by smashing, squashing, and even stepping
on them; and, then wearing them
as far back on the head aa possible.
Reminiscing
In Tempo
By PETER REMNANT
• FOR TEN YEARS now
we have heard from all
sides that there has never
been a musician like Paul
Whiteman; never a musician'
like Goodman; never a musician like Miller. These
names have one after the
other held top place on nation wide popularity polls,
and   thousands   of   records
have carried their names.
But there has been one man
who, comparatively unnoticed, has
stayed very close to the top all
that time, he has done more to attract the attention of so-called
serious musicians to jazz than all
the Gershwlns and Grofes that
ever lived, and has contributed
more to American music than has
any other composer.
• THIS MAN is, of course, the
coloured leader, "Duke" Ellington, who has since 1924 been
leading an orchestra containing
some of the greatest jazzmen in
America. During this time the
Duke has put out enough jazz to
keep the record collectors penniless, and just enough commercial
music to pay the expenses of a big
band. Commercial music, but
commercial music permeated with
the Ellington atmosphere.
This orchestra of the Duke's is
an amazing thing. It is built
around a nucleus of men who have
been with the band so long that
the world has forgotten where they
came from, certainly they were not
connected with any other big band
before they joined Ellington. The
men I speak of are Nanton, Carney,
Williams, Bigard, Hardwicke,
Greer and Guy.
e THE PAST of Ellington himself
is not quite so obscure. His first
venture in music came, when as a
soda-jerker in the "Poodle Dog"
in Washington, D.C., he filled in
for the regular pianist, who had
a previous engagement with a gin
bottle most of the time. To cele-
brato this promotion Ellington
composed "Tho Soda Fountain-
Rag,' which he then played for
several months, in several different tempos and under several different names.
From these humble beginnings
he went to Wil Sweatman's Orchestra, which among other attractions,
featured a man who could play
three clarinets at one time. Needless to say Ellington soon became
disgusted, and with five men of
his own choice set out for New
York, where, billed as Ellington
and hi<: Washingtonians, they
played in small night spots.
Once with a start in the big city,
Ellington was soon joined by many
of the best men to be found. He
drew players from the great bands
of Fletcher Henderson and Count
Basic, but for the most part his
men came from Heaven knows
where, to be molded into the most
compact, homogeneous orchestra
that has ever played jazz.
His music is written with f> purpose. He writes with the complete emancipation of the American Negro always in his mind. Unlike his contemporaries who write
of the Negro of the plantations,
Ellington writes the saga of the
Negro of the great northern cities,
with his poverty and sorrow, his
flashes of wild joy, but underlying all, the ever present will and
struggle for existence.

an article displayed In the newspapers by the Vancouver Breweries, Limited, at the beginning of
the academic year.
STUDENTS
It spoke of the world entering
on a new "race between education
and catastrophe" and on the part
that students must play in seeing
that catastrophe does not win as
it did In 1918-1939. Dr. Clarke
agreed with the idea but asked
why the Department of Education,
or the School Board ... or the
UBYSSEY . . . couldn't have sponsored the article.
"What are we going to do with
the Germans when we win?"
"What do we mean by a 'New
World Order'?" Such questions
must be discussed and decided in
our schools and colleges. "Every
student is concerned," he said.

*   MORE THAN 800 students voted unanimous approval
of the 1942-43 policy read by Secretary Mary Warner,
aof the Student Council at the annual fall meeting of the Alma
Mater Society in the Auditorium at noon Wednesday.

making them informal functions.
Some discussion was entered
from the floor, but no real objection was raised to the plan.
True to the election promises
ho made last Spring, President
Morris raised the question of placing the representatives of the
various undergraduate societies on
the council,
Tho Student Council rejected
this proposal at the last meeting
when John Carson, Men's Undergraduate Society representative on
tho council, announced his intention of holding regular meetings
with these representatives to discuss the council plans with them.
HUMOUR
A note of unconscious humour
was supplied by Morris, when,
outlining a proposed plan to give
students part-time employment in
war industries through a campus
employment bureau, he warned
the students that "however, you
are here for an education, not to
work."
The plan for extra work is such
that students may take some kind
of part-time work on free afternoons.
FINANCES
Arvid Backman, A.M.S. Treasurer, was kept busy answering
questions with regard to the pass
funds. He disclosed that there
is a surplus of $1,324.26 on hand.
Backman's financial report was
adopted unanimously, and he was
cheered when he announced that
it was his policy to spend all the
money devoted to pass funds this
year.

Last week the cast—or most of
it—made the studios just before
the theme went on to signify that
U.B.C. was on the air.
To prevent recurrence of the

of the cast to get downtown after
the COTC Saturday afternoon parades. Station producers saw the
difficulty, and agreed to a 15-

This Saturday's show features
the debut of several new members,

little fun, a little music, and a
little information for both Varsity
and non-Varsity listeners. Top

English Rugby And Soccer Opens Tomorrow
Two Squads Play
At Brockton Oval
In Opening Tilts
By NORM. KLENMAN
•   WORD HAS BEEN getting around, but quick, that University of British Columbia would return to Vancouver
Rugby Union competition this season with two Miller Cup
squads of the highest calibre.
Even the downtown papers helped foster the spirit
with a big publicity buildup, but rumor hasn't got a chance
these days and head rugger Coach Maury Van Vliet put
his heel down hard on this one.
Booked for tomorrow afternoon,
the Varsity men aren't even sure
of fielding two teams, Mr. Van
Vliet revealed.
"Only three, possibly four, men
with previous Thunderbird experience are back," he said. "They
are Sandy Thompson, Hunter
Wood, Al. Narod, and maybe Bill
Orr."
Though over thirty men have
been turning out to dally practices,
Manager Maury McPhee is none
too optimistic, either. Many of these
will have to be discounted In future
because of C.O.T.C. parades and
others may not be of high enough
standard.
WANT TWO SQUADS
Despite all these probable setbacks, Lynn Sully, Men's Athletic
Representative, would like to carry
on with two teams because more
men would get a chance to play.
Mr. Van Vliet Is wondering where
the "more men" are hiding.
"We'll have to field two teams
this week-end," he continued, "but
Fm not sure If we can go on with
both after that."
The B boys are down to start
against Rowing Club In the first
match tomorrow, and the A men
will follow them up In the feature
with Ex-Byng.
•
NO LINE-UP
Neither Manager McPhee nor
Assistant Coach Mack Buck can
yet  name  a  starting  line-up  on
elfiJerteajnTbunhe^wnSttieoff
the best talent for press release.
Al. Narod, Paul Jagger, Sandy
Thompson, Pat Frith, John Hicks,
Chuck Wills, John Wheeler, and
Don Atherton look like impressive
backfield men, and are certain
starters.
PROSPECTS
Dorl Johnson, Art Eckman, Hunter Wood, Bill Orr, Graham Harrison, Bill Lighthall, and Bob Farrls
are believed to be the best scrum
prospects with several dependable
replacements coming up fast.
Both Van Vliet and Buck have
been drilling the Thunderbirds'in
fast-break tactics. A seven-man
scrum with a "rover" or breakaway man (probably Farrls) is expected to cause a sensation in coming matches.
Following the turnout for Saturday's mix-ups, the powers that
be will pass judgment on the proposed dropping of the B squad. The
decision will probably depend on
both the turnout of players and
their showing on the field.
Cricketers
Practices
Cancelled
• THE CRICKET club has been
forced to abandon their plans
of continuing practices throughout
the winter.
Plans had been made by Men's
Athletic representative, Lynn Sully, for a practice pitch to be set
up in the Armouries one night a
week to allow the enthusiasts of
the game to carry on during the
off season.
But the pressure of military
training and the fact that the
armouries is in use all the time
has forced the cancellation of the
practice sessions.

Thanksgiving Grid Off
Varsity Starts
Season At Powell
Street Saturday
By BILL WELSFORD
•   THE U.B.C. SOCCER players play their first game of
the season this Saturday on the Powell Street grounds at
3:30.   Their opponents will be the new and highly rated
West Coast Shipyards team.
Off the Cuff
By CHUCK CLARIDGE
• THE NEWS that American
football will be played at the
University this year was welcome
tidings to us enthusiasts of the
grid game on the campus.
Last year when only one contest was played, that against the
Vancouver Grizzlies of the professional Western Canada League,
it served only to whet our appetites.
WHY ARGUMENT
Why there was any argument
concerning the continuance of the
game during a wartime session is
something that created much misunderstanding and furor amongst
the rabid fans of the bone-crushing sport. Why should the basketball squad be allowed to continue
in their customary fashion? True,
there was a scarcity of competition but at the Homecoming game
of last year it was proved that the
Thunderbirds had a team that was
capable of giving the fans what
they clamored for, action and excitement, without interfering with
milltray training.
FARINA COACH
This year Johnny Farina, star
of many of the former Thunderbird football squads has taken the
matter into his own hands and is
coaching a team to play under the
American code against two local
teams, Vancouver College and
Boeings.
His spirit is to be commended
and his efforts to start the game
once more will give the fans
thrilling football games again this
year.
There have been many players
at the University who have been
unable to take part in their sport
on a competitive basis while others
in different lines have been able
to carry on.
This year the American football
eleven will fill the athletic neds
of these students. Military training, it is hoped, will not interfere
with the schedule and the tentative
games that have been scheduled
will be looked forward to by many.
MILITARY TRAINING
That old bugaboo of the sport
situation on the campus, military
training, always enters Into the
picture but it should be able to
overcome the situation by midweek drill sessions for the players,
The English rugby squad will be
doing it so the grldders will probably join them.
Apart from this the grid game
should enjoy a healthful season
and provide entertainment for the
followers of the pigskin game.
Lack Of Practice Forces
Postponement Of Game
•   THE AMERICAN FOOTBALL team will not be playing
on Thanksgiving Day as was rumored around the campus
yesterday.
At the practice on Wednesday night, Johnny Farina
announced to the players that it would be better for them
to wait until they had had more practice when they would be
able to make a better showing.
The game was scheduled against       ________________________
the Vancouver College crew at
Athletic Park. Now that this contest is definitely off, the other
tentative dates are on October 24
Faring
... to Coach
with the College and October 31
against Boeings.
This latter game with Boeings
on the 31st of October is to be
the feature attraction of the Homecoming ceremonies held every
year.
